The results of last year’s scientific research of the Institute of Marine Biology in the Russian city of Murmansk. Showed that the Arctic Sea is the purest on the planet. Said the Deputy Director of the Institute Dmitry Iskhuklov. The Arctic Sea Is The Purest On The Planet!
The Arctic Sea Is The Purest On The Planet
He told TASS that the Arctic must be one of the cleanest in spite of active development and exploitation in the north. Last year, scientists from the Institute organized several major expeditions to the Arctic. Which were carried out in the area of Greenland, Norway and Barents Sea.
Some tests during the expedition required lengthy laboratory and analytical work. During which experts examined samples of water, sediments, plants and animals. After which they used the results to present the ecological situation in the area. The Institute’s experts did not find plastic microparticles, although environmentalists were worried about their possible existence.
“The Barents Sea is still quite clean, spearheading the development of the oil and gas sector and the fact that there are many industrial and military installations on its shores!” Said an official at the Institute, adding that the situation is similar in the other two seas.
Scientists pay special attention to the Golf Power. As it affects the climate in the western parts of the Arctic. Some environmentalists claim that global warming could affect the flow of this current. Which would have permanent consequences for the area of the Far North.
However, experts from the Murmansk Institute state that the Gulf Stream is changing only seasonal. And marine biologists claim that the global warming process is cyclical and that in the future it will come to the opposite process, with the remark that such cycles are known from the past.
